  1. My wife and I filled it out and got a confirmation of successful registration. I will enormously surprised if we are ever contacted about it. There is nothing that indicates it will get you any priority for the vaccine or any notification of its availability.
  2. It's not readily apparent to me what value there is in filling out this form. There is no suggestion that it will get you vaccinated any sooner than anyone else. It's not even clear in the explanation on the form what the government will do with it. This isn't a very effective demographic measure, and it sure isn't the census that didn't happen last year as planned. The government had better not be making distribution decisions based on who responds to a voluntary internet form. On the other hand, I don't see any harm in filling it out.
  3. Wow, I thought travel was a hassle before Covid. At least you didn't test positive at Tocumen and get sent to a Covid hotel. It could have been worse!
  4. Tuesdays are mens' days. I don't think the market can declare the 29th a womens' day.
  5. I'm not sure this will eliminate bribes at all. They will simply occur before the electronic ticket is written, right?
  6. The annual plate replacement here in Panama was one of the oddest things I have encountered. Of course, it seems odd that the annual vehicle inspection doesn't involve an inspection of anything except the paint colors, LIKE THAT MATTERS.
  7. According to some of Ken's close friends, Ken was brutally murdered. An autopsy is necessary for legal purposes but there is no doubt. There is also little doubt who did it. Police are actively seeking this individual.
  8. It seems to me that there is a fundamental question that has not been resolved. Is this State of Emergency allowed under the Panamanian constitution, or not? These protestors were almost certainly violating quarantine. I'm about tired of the heavy-handedness of the restrictions, and if they are unconstitutional, they should be lifted.
  9. It baffles me. Panama continues to have the most severe restrictions of any country, yet it is not working. Just a few miles from here, Costa Rica is basically open with distancing requirements and a much lower infection rate.
  10. That could be. At the moment, though, she's the only one making any money.
  11. Spraying the tires at the checkpoint is so silly. Covid is an airborne disease, and the virus dies quickly outdoors. Even if we somehow got some virus on our tires, nobody uses them for dinner plates.
  12. Is the El Cancho gym the one in Los Naranjos?
